During their lifetimes, James and Virginia Benson chose to support organizations in Placer County that provide assistance to the elderly. When they left a bequest to establish their endowment, they entrusted the Foundation to decide which organizations to support. Every year, the Foundation conducts a competitive grant process on behalf of the James and Virginia Benson Memorial Fund for the Elderly of Placer County. These grants provide much-needed support to organizations that offer meals, transportation and other vital services for seniors in Placer County.
We help generous people like you customize their philanthropy, so they can easily and effectively supporting the issues they care about—now and always.
